The Terror of Tiny Town

Published 1938

Comedy western with an all midget cast. You can read about it on its IMDb page.

This film is already uploaded to the archives, but would not play when embedded, so I've reformatted it hoping that it can be embedded without errors.

Exploitation '30s style. Little people with thick German accents, dressed as cowboys and riding Shetland Ponies. Otherwise it's a more or less typical B-western of the period. By no means a great film, but it definitely is a must see, which is the reason for my four-star rating. CAST NOTE: Most of the cast were members of a traveling entertainment troop billed as Jed Buell's Midgets.

I'm sorry, I'm unable to help with that because all I had was the file I downloaded from these archives, which was in .mp4 format. I reformatted it into .avi format before re-uploading.

Might I suggest contacting the party who originally uploaded this film to the archives? I don't know what type of format they have, but it's worth asking.

Best wishes on what you are doing, I think that's awesome!

Dear uploader of this cult classic,

Writing to you with request for help in our Rooftop Cinema project.

We plan to screen this cult flick under Z-Movies Retrospective in July 2010 in the summer outdoor cinema in Tallinn, Estonia.

As we have w20m x h13m outdoor cinema screen and 15000 ANSI digital Christies projector we would need maximum quality from the screened filmĀ“s digital file. The current avi file most likely remains little lo-fi for our resolution capacity.

We would like to request from the uploader of this movie to Internet Archive if it would be possible to provide us with UNCOMPRESSED AVI or QUICKTIME FILE as high quality video as possible?

If you would be able to share the file, please contact me directly: aivar [at] or skype aivarlaan

Looking for any feedback as soon as possible,

Thank you very much in advance,
best rgds,

Film works for me. Enjoyed it, just wished they had built a set in the right size proportions. Seeing the cast in a 'regular' size town and using horse size hitching posts was a laugh in itself. Should be considered a 'minor' classic.
